“But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit”(Titus 3:4-5)
We do not (and cannot) save ourselves. Too many follow the wickedness of thinking we are equal to God and just need to do a few good works. Only in the goodness and kindness of God do we have any hope. Like life itself, we are completely dependent upon Him. Apart from Him, we can do nothing. Come then and walk in the freedom He gives. Come, eat and drink without paying and enter into His peace.
Lord, how can this be? What are You doing? You say, “Come and find out.” But I want to do something and earn my way. Lead me, O Lord, so that I would humbly walk in the truth of the revelation You have given me through Christ. Let me see clearly that this is not something I can reach out and grasp on my own but is the free gift You give through faith. Lead me, Lord, that I may become a child of God.
Thank You Jesus for coming and saving me in the midst of this rebellious world which teaches me to hate, strive, and gain for myself. Lead me, Lord, in the way of everlasting life so that I might now and forever walk humbly in Your grace and mercy. You have appeared not to judge, but in order that we might now and forever have everlasting life. Lead me in this new life always! Amen.
